Text to Give

Text 844-982-0209 with the amount you’d like to donate and the code for where you would like your donation to go. To make a Generous Congregation Contribution, use code GCC; for example, “$20 GCC”. To make a Pledge contribution, use PLG (“$200 PLG”). To make a non-pledge contribution to another fund, use IDC (“$20 IDC”).

Text giving is mobile, easy, and it makes a huge difference. Donations of any amount are gratefully accepted. (The first time you give, you’ll be asked to register.)

We are excited to speak with members contemplating long-term gifts to support the mission and ministry of the church.  A trust, bequest, or beneficiary designation costs nothing now and ensures a lasting legacy in the work of the church and our congregational life. Connect with the Stewardship team LINK to start the conversation.

Generous Congregation

Our practice at UUSM is to dedicate half of our non-pledge Sunday offerings to organizations doing work in the world that advances our Unitarian Universalist principles; the other 50% of the offering is used to support the life of our church. Together, we uplift the reach and impact of vital organizations doing work we could not do on our own.
